Jan.2020 – End of Month Hodgepodge

Hey all,

Another month has come and gone and I am sure that countless cars have been spotted in the street! Unfortunately, most of the spotting has not been done by me.  Take a peak at some random cars that have been LA car spotted.

February is a new month and I just grabbed a new lens for the “spotting” camera – fun times ahead!

1970 Datsun 521 truck (1300)

Spotted a lovely 1970’s Datsun 1300 truck as the sun set on Atwater village in Los Angeles.  The truck sat idly on a small side street as festivities ensued nearby.  has a Fiji water bottle. The paint looks relatively nice and the truck overall appears to be in great condition. Enjoy.

1989 Dodge Raider

Hey there, look what we have spotted recently – the gloriously boxy and small SUV from Dodge in the late 1980’s – dubbed the “Raider”.  Now this car is basically a re-badged Mitsubishi Pajero and that’s OK with us, in matter of fact it probably makes this Dodge SUV more competent. This boxy two-door SUV checks all the boxes for LACS. Enjoy

And check out some other small boxy SUVs we’ve spotted:

1985 Ford Bronco II

1986 Suzuki Samurai (Jimny)

1982 Chevrolet Silverado C10 Pickup

Hello.  Spotted recently around Los Angeles is this 1982 Chevy C10 pickup with a hard top cap.  This C/K truck still proudly displays it’s 4×4 badge is clearly on the fender. This one caught my eye because it appears to be in great condition – sporting a nice red paint job and even the chrome is still shining bright! Enjoy

October ’18 – End of Month Hodgepodge

Happy end of October! Another month has concluded and with it, the LACS hodgepodge makes it’s appearance.  Yet again, this one is light because of the wedding.

This month, we only posted 2 car spottings.  One was a 1972 Chevy Monte Carlo cloaked in black and sporting excellent chrome wheels; a perfect match. We also saw a 1970 Cadillac DeVille – man are those big cars.

Enjoy this and look forward to even more next month!

August – End of Month Hodgepodge

As is usual for the end of the month, we post pictures of the vehicles that did not make the cut for a full feature.  To be honest, there were not many this month but none-the-less, let the hodgepodge commence.

1982 Jeep CJ-7

Here, presented for you on wonderful dead-end street near the Los Angeles “River”, is a 1982 (maybe) Jeep CJ-7.  This is one of the last CJ style Jeep generations made, and a personal favorite of mine.  The CJ-7 still had the gusto and utilitarian looks of the CJ series with some “modern” touches.  It was also still powered by the AMC line of engines. Enjoy

And some other Jeep’s we’ve spotted:

1989 Jeep Grand Wagoneer

Classic Postal Jeep DJ-6

1963 Ford Falcon Coupe

Check out this 1963 Ford Falcon Coupe spotted in Silverlake.  I am a big fan of the Falcon model, especially the first generation such as this one.  Did you know:  The Falcon line was one of Ford’s first mass-produced vehicle that was a unibody design instead of a body on frame?  Most interesting.

Check out other Falcon’s and Falcon variants we have spotted:

1961 Ford Falcon Coupe

Early 60’s Ford Ranchero

1963 Mercury Meteor Custom

Tesla Model 3 – New Release

Well here is something we don’t often feature on LA Car Spotting: a brand new car.  This one happens to be the Tesla Model 3, touted as the “affordable” electric car from Tesla. It’s not every day you see one of these, in fact, they seem to still be quite rare, even in the sprawling metropolis called Los Angeles.

It looks like a car but runs on electricity and drives itself… so is it an appliance?   It sure is a fast appliance; hitting 0-60 mph in about 5 seconds.  I bet your toaster can’t do that.  A striking aesthetic difference on the Tesla Model 3 (and Model S for that matter) is the lack of a front grille. And it doesn’t need one because, well, no radiator. Enjoy these pics.

1975 Chevy Corvette

Spotted this Chevrolet Corvette from 1975.  A perfect time capsule of engineering, design and bravado from a bygone era. This Corvette is in beautiful shape and I would have taken a nice profile shot had there not been a plethora of cars zipping by.  You see, I value my legs and the ability to walk. But I also value a profile shot of a beautiful 1975 Corvette…. Ahhh what a dilemma! Enjoy these pics.

1965 Pontiac Bonneville

With more than 50 years under it’s belt, this full sized Pontiac could use some tender love and care.  I am sure this is a handful to drive around Los Angeles, considering it’s rather large stature.  Just look at the overhang behind the rear wheels! How many bodies do you think you could fit in that trunk?

And check out some other classic Pontiac’s we’ve spotted
